Description 

The best route here at Prayer Wall! Classic edges and sequence. Starts at an incipient crack in the middle of the face, jogs left to pods in another incipient crack for a couple of moves, then moves back right to the 'sickle' shaped slot. From here follow the gradually improving holds straight up along the crack.


Protection 

TR or headpoint.

The lead is "R". The pro is all small, marginal placements in flaring crack. The best piece was a bomber Met #2 well after the crux at the top. Good movement and finger stacking in notches on this one!
